Hello Paul and Brian,

Sorry to be late joining the discussion but I have been writing up a different line of my family tree over the past few months.

I have also been looking for another Henry Bexfield without success. I did wonder if Stephen and Emily Bexfield might have produced another Henry following the death of their previous son called Henry. I have looked for a Henry Bexfield who died in the 1840s to free Priscilla to marry Jonathon Patterson, but without success.

I think we have to conclude that both Henry and Priscilla married a second time - from an article in WDYTYA magazine I don't think they would have divorced as this could only be done by an Act of Parliament, though I haven't checked.

I don't know the size of Yarmouth in those days, but I imagine a lot of people knew he had two families. It's interesting to note that his father, Thomas, died in 1835, which perhaps meant he felt able to marry Mary Ann.

I have Henry's death Certificate which says he died of natural causes on board the schooner Janette Wales aged 52.

Thank you for bringing his marriage to Priscilla to my attention as I would not have otherwise known about it.

Sarah
